Fabric CD Box

Ages ago I bought Amy Butler's In Stitches from Amazon. This CD Box is my first project from that book.

I would like to tell you it was a complete success, and it was going rather well, but then the crappy sewing on the top edge happened. I could blame my Toyota sewing machine, but let's face it, it's probably me.

I did do a very fine job on the bottom. Look at that crisp edge. Too bad you can't see the bottom when the box is doing what it's supposed to. Namely holding CDs.

This project calls for Timtex, a fancy schmancy interfacing that is not sold here. I used a cereal box instead to give it some shape. I also omitted the handles for the box, because I didn't want to cover the pretty red flowers.

The fabric is from Etsy. I only bought a half a meter. Should have gotten more when I had the chance. I could have made two boxes. I would have even been extra careful with the topstitching on the second one.


  1. I like it a lot. Once you fill it with CDs (or whatever it will be holding), the top edge will be hardly noticeable!

  2. Prekrasno! materijal je san snova!
    Jednom sam pokušala nabaviti Amy-nu knjigu, ali tak nije bila dostupna pa sam odustala - kupila sam neke druge kao zamjenu.
    nadam se da ćeš se "zagrijati" za još neke projekte iz knige i podijeliti ih s nama!

  3. To izgleda sasvim ok. Materijal je fenomenalan, a što više šiješ, bolje će ti ići!
